This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

An Eye Opening Interpretation...

My spiritual mentor, who is a prayer warrior extraordinaire, sent me this in an email.  It was displayed beneath the glass on my work area for most of my eleven years when I worked for the federal courts. In the process of cleaning out my office, I found it.  I thought I would share it with you...

Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd. That's Relationship!

I shall not want.  That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.  That's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters.  That's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul.  That's Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.  That's Guidance!

For His name sake.  That's Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.  That's Testing!

I will fear no evil.  That's Protection!

For Thou art with me.  That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.  That's Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.  That's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil.  That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over.  That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.  That's Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord.  That's Security!

Forever.  That's Eternity!

AMEN!

Donna, what a fabulous post...! I am going to cut and paste this and put it on my desk top. It is one of my favorite psalms, and I love the way you describe it.

And thank you for the link to the other blog too. I enjoyed it!

Gosh, life is a four-letter word, isn't it????
